Steyn: Chinese Banner Gloats that Wuhan Virus is Hitting the U.S. and Japan
The banner at right flutters over a franchise of the Chinese restaurant chain Mama Yang. If you don’t speak ChiCom Wuhu, it reads:
Huge congratulations to the American epidemic and long live the epidemic in little Japan
As Tucker Carlson likes to say, China is the most racist country on earth. But it’s even more racist to point that out, according to the decadent halfwits of the American media. Their position – on an increasing range of subjects – is to throttle free speech ever tighter, to demand that every story be discussed within an ever narrower range of leftie parameters. Political correctness, yea unto death, led to (as I mentioned on TV and radio last week) Florence’s mayor urging Italians to hug a Chinaman, and New York City’s Health Commissar (and her deputy) tweeting just a month ago:
Today our city is celebrating the #LunarNewYear parade in Chinatown, a beautiful cultural tradition with a rich history in our city. I want to remind everyone to enjoy the parade and not change any plans due to misinformation spreading about #coronavirus.
Gee, thanks, Ms Health Commissioner. Now you’re Italy.
